Thanks Jeff and Peter. Here's a video of it calling last night before it left into the woods.




And here's a video of it returning with it's dinner last night as well. Some sort of small bird.

So...how do you go about constructing boxes that attract a certain type of bird?

I google searched "screech owl nest box plans" and several plans came up. I just went by the inside dimensions the plans said the box should be and built it from there. I used 1" thick cedar (not aromatic cedar) so my outside dimensions were larger. I also had to modify the front to allow for the oak log I put on the front. The boxes don't look like much but the owls don't care.

Do not paint or stain the boxes...use natural materials and just let it weather in the elements.

Nice; thanks! Love the idea of sticking the log in there; did you provide a starter hole in the log, or was that part of it done by your guests?

I drilled a 3" diameter hole in the log. Screech Owls do not build their own nests, they take over a cavity made by another animal mainly wood peckers. I also lined the bottom of my owl boxes with pine straw because owls again, don't build a nest they just use what's in there left by the previous tenant.

Great stuff; thanks! May look into building one or two of these...wonder if I can drill a hole in the old tree out back and attract a GHO :D
